Let's take a quick peek back at the accomplishments I wrote about way back in December for week 10. Did you click the link? Read up? Good.
I can say that I am still proud of the accomplishments I wrote about nearly seven months ago. They all stand true today. Especially teaching, I am so proud of all my students, and the way we impact each other. I am proud to say that I still love my job, despite the challenges over the years.
I am proud that I have chosen to continue to walk the path in front of me. It's not been an easy journey and there are many, many times where I wanted to give up. But I didn't. I won't give up. I am proud of my decision to join my team in the fight against my challenges. I'm proud of the fact that I still show up for therapy and dig into things I don't want to acknowledge, much less look at and talk about. I'm proud of the fact that I've learned to better take care of myself during family situations that get out of hand. Instead of toughing it out and letting my family walk all over me, I will now do what I need to do to take care of me, even though it feels impossibly hard.
I'm proud of this blog. I never thought that I'd become a blogger. Sure, I've always loved to write, but I've shared my writing with maybe 5-6 people, three of whom were my former teachers. Otherwise, my writing has always been private. I never thought it good enough to share.
Hmmmm.... pride.... this is a pretty decent list of things to be proud of... if only I can transfer them into sources of confidence.... guess I'll just have to wait and see!
